OVERVIEW

    Paul Vincent Carroll 

  • Setting

    The action passes in 'The Royal Arms' a public-house and shop on the outskirts of Dundalk.

  • Synopsis

    A father and mother fight for the soul of their daughter. The mother wants her to marry a wealthy local, a match which would bring money to renovate her pub and prestige to her family. The father has always instilled in his daughter a fierce sense of independence and distrust of religion and much of society's prevailing values. She is much more her father's daughter, but ultimately accepts that she must deal with the opportunities she has, not ones she would hope for.
